De Bruyne signed a six-year contract with Manchester City on Sunday after transferring from Wolfsburg.

De Bruyne is likely the last piece of a significant summer signing period for the Citizens, who also added Raheem Sterling, Fabian Delph and Nicolas Otamendi. De Bruyne struggled in the Premier League when he was with Chelsea, but he flourished in Germany and Man City are surely hoping he'll be able to transfer his form over. He's likely to start out on the wing opposite Raheem Sterling, with David Silva firmly entrenched in the No. 10 role, though the two could rotate in and out.

Bakary Sako has played brilliantly in his first two matches for Crystal Palace, and given his ability to play as a midfielder or a forward, he should continue to get consistent playing time for the Eagles.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

De Bruyne is expected to finalize his move from Wolfsburg to Manchester City in a club-record £54 million transfer this weekend, the Manchester Evening News reports.

De Bruyne struggled in the Premier League when he was with Chelsea, but he absolutely thrived with Wolfsburg last season, helping them finish second in the Bundesliga and clinch a spot in the Champions League this season (coincidentally, they will play in Manchester United's group). He is expected to replace Jesus Navas on the right wing despite playing a more central role in Germany, but with David Silva entrenched as the No. 10, De Bruyne will be pushed out wide.

Manchester City began discussions with Wolfsburg about a potential summer transfer of De Bruyne, reports the Daily Mail.

De Bruyne confirmed that his agent had informal talks with Manchester City regarding a potential transfer, reports Sky Sports.

The midfielder had an extremely strong season with Wolfsburg in Germany, and has attracted the attention of a number of big clubs as a result. He still has four years remaining on his current contract, so any transfer will have to be heavily negotiated with the German side.

De Bruyne assisted on Daniel Caligiuri's goal in the first minute of Wolfsburg's 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday, his 21st assist of the season, which is a new single-season league record.

De Bruyne has been magical for Wolfsburg this season, as his 21 assists are tops in the big European domestic leagues. While he's assured Wolfsburg of qualifying for next season's Champions League, he has been heavily rumored to be leaving the club this summer, with Manchester City appearing to be the likeliest landing spot.

De Bruyne had a game-high 12 crosses as Wolfsburg lost 4-1 Thursday to Napoli in the Europa League.

De Bruyne was typically creative throughout but could not help Wolfsburg avoid an embarrassing home defeat. The Belgian was one of very few positives in a dismal team display, constantly sending dangerous balls into the box and producing the highest pass accuracy on the side.
